Have you ever said to yourself, "Gosh, I have all this animal observation DV footage, but no way to log the behaviors?" OK, maybe not. How about "Wow, I'm running this focus group/sleep study/usability project and I'd love to tag my tapes with timecoded subject actions?" Either way, Annotation 1.0 might help.
This app from cleverly-named vendor SaySoSoft is the first commercial release of a tool previously deployed in academic settings. You can 'score' your rich media content with a timeline of events or observations, then play back the event timeline like a player piano. The timeline is searchable or exportable as CSV for further statistical analysis.
There's a demo download available and the full package will set you back $299.
